Robert Smith photographed by Kevin Westenberg at The Worx Studios, London in July 1993 whilst on a photo shoot for SPIN Magazine.
Kevin recalls, "The Cure were always popular in UK and Europe but they were also one of those bands that truly cracked America. Witness their illustrious induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame by Trent Reznor in 2019. Top job and so well deserved after almost too many hit singles and great changes of music style over the years to mention. I always loved the fact that they also did it all on their own terms.
Robert’s love of sleep and all his hilarious interviews over the years are always a source of awe. This was my one and only day in the photo studio photographing him. Robert turned up COMPLETELY on his own which has always been huge brownie points in my book. Total pro.
This one is a current recently discovered favourite of all the prints I had on file. Creating a usable mysterious atmosphere in a cold white cover has always been a particular challenge. To also not repeat myself visually, or as little as humanly possible, has also been a goal. This is simply some filtered lights shining and reflecting off of mirror foil material onto the cove. Then some simple lighting on Robert. The skill then is to find an interesting mood or quirk of personality nobody has seen before. He’s been photographed so much over the years, I think by 1993 standards, I achieved my goals".

A great print deserves a great frame. At Rockarchive we would be delighted to advise you on how best to select the right frame for your print. Please just let us know when you place your order or contact us once you have received your print and we will discuss the various options with you.
If you live in London we can arrange to get your print framed for you. Once the print is framed you can either collect it from our London Rockarchive Studio, in Kentish Town or we can arrange for it to be delivered to your London address (at an extra charge).
If you live elsewhere in the UK, we can arrange to get smaller sized prints framed and shipped to you. However due to postage regulations acrylic (eg perspex) rather than glass needs to be used in the frame.
If you live outside of the UK, we are sorry we are unable to ship framed prints to you.
For all framing enquiries please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on +44 (0) 20 7267 4716
